If you have a screen top, you can put saran wrap around part of the top. Or a piece of plexiglass, sometimes just a towel will work. Make sure you don’t cover the whole top and what ever you are covering it with it is not to close to the light.

terra cotta pots help keep up humidity, the brownish ones that hvae not been painted. You can use them as hides or even have plants potted in them.
Live plants help keep up humidity.
Having a water dish that has a larger surface area helps
Covering the part of the screen like stated.
Focusing your heat lights on only half or a smaller area of the tank helps to keep the humidity up

I also have a small bowl of water that I have a strip of white towel (terry cloth) with one end in the water. The other end is attached to teh wall of the tank. The water wicks up the towel and increases the humidity in the tnak. You just have to rinse the cloth regularly and change it every couple of months. Works well.
